Why Bluetooth stalls in cars

Kelvyn Taylor describes problems linking an I-Mate Jam smartphone to the Bluetooth facilities in a Seat Altea car (Bluetooth drives into trouble, 18 July).
The problem is that the I-Mate’s manufacturer, HTC – which also makes O2’s XDA and similar handsets for other networks – has only enabled its Bluetooth software to work with a headset. It will never work with any car kit.
Once the IMate has paired with a headset it should stop looking for other Bluetooth devices, so its ongoing attempts to link to the Altea suggest it is faulty.
